A timely spell to prevent any imposters in the White House from harming themselves or others.
Magic Ritual

It has come to my attention that many metaphysically-oriented persons are organizing to cast a "binding spell" on the man currently illegally occupying the White House. The problem is, the spells I've seen include elements of outrage, which not only weaken the spell—they can strengthen the person at whom the spell is cast, which is obviously the opposite of what is desired.

To explain to future readers what the heck this is about, I must first be sure you've heard that Russian interference with our national election in November, 2016, plus other factors such as gerrymandering, hacked voting machines, and a corrupt Democratic National Convention that ignored the will of its constituents, put a man into the White House who didn't win the popular vote and who, in fact, has demonstrated a desire to walk back our democracy 150 years. (In 2017, his supporters, who seem unable to grasp any reality that conficts with the pretender's lies, don't believe any of the evidence, which they refuse to even examine. But the reality will be clear enough to future readers.)

Given this interloper's horrifying and treasonous actions since he took over, and the increasing number of people showing up at almost daily protests against him, it should be no surprise that virtual groups around the world are also gathering to #Resist; and some of those groups include Wiccans, witches, magicians, wizards, New Agers, and the like. And many of those groups have planned to hold simultaneous binding spells tonight, and at each repeat of the waning crescent moon, until the imposter has been removed from office. In fact, the instructions have been published on the Internet.

A binding spell is not a hex or a curse. Rather, it is a spell intended to prevent its target from hurting himself or others. Essentially, just as you can put a shield of protection around yourself (by envisioning yourself surrounded by a shield of White Light), you can put that shield around someone else who is so dangerous (or insane) that he or she poses a threat to others. It doesn't harm them, but does prevent them from performing further harmful actions.

The thing is, it's very important when performing a ritual like this, that one not hold thoughts of harm against the one at whom the spell is cast. If the spell is performed in a state of anger or fear, it will have the opposite of the desired effect.

Rather, you must maintain the attitude you would have as you gently explained to an acting-out 5-year-old why he must sit in the corner for awhile. —That is, a feeling of love and kindliness for the target. If you have trouble feeling love for him, try feeling love for his victims (currently, immigrants, Muslims, Native Americans, and transgendered children, but we'll soon all be affected if he isn't stopped). But remember, he, like you and I, is a part of All That Is and has merely lost his way, as so many of us do on occasion. The real purpose of a binding spell isn't punishment, but rather protection for the target from himself.

With all that in mind, I am hereby offering a gentler (and, I think, more effective) binding spell.

This spell is to be cast at midnight EST (the time zone the pretender most often occupies, whether in the White House, his tower in New York, or his vacation property in Mar-a-Lago, Florida. There's nothing magic about the time, other than that the simultaneity of thousands of magicians casting the spell at the same time should make it more effective. The date of the first casting is tonight, the night of the waning crescent moon; with subsequent castings monthly for as long as the pretender illegally occupies the top seat of our government: March 26th; April 24th; May 23rd; June 21st (especially important as it is the summer solstice); July 21st; August 19th; etc.


Gather these items together so you have them when you need them (midnight EST, which is 10 PM in Phoenix).


Putin's puppet

A small, paper photo of the target, especially one in which he looks childish or petulant.

Tower card from any tarot deck

Tower tarot card

The Tower shows a tall tower pitched atop a craggy mountain. Lightning strikes and flames burst from the building's windows. People are seen to be leaping from the tower in desperation, wanting to flee such destruction and turmoil. The Tower signifies darkness and destruction on a physical scale, as opposed to a spiritual scale. The Tower itself represents ambitions built on false premises. The lightning bolt breaks down existing forms in order to make room for new ones. It represents a sudden, momentary glimpse of truth, a flash of inspiration that breaks down structures of ignorance and false reasoning. Notice the lightning bolt is oriented left to right (from the perspective of the card), from heaven to earth, and from Spirit to material. The falling figures correspond to the chained prisoners in the Devil card. They fall headfirst, because the sudden influx of spiritual consciousness represented by the lightning flash completely upsets all our old notions about the relations between subconsciousness and self-consciousness. The flames are actually the Hebrew yods. There are 22 flames, representing the 22 Major Arcana. The gray clouds are the clouds of misfortune that rain on everyone indiscriminately. The ruling planet of this card is Mars.

A Cheeto

Single Cheeto

A single Cheeto, or (alternatively) a stubby orange candle or baby carrot.

Straight pin (or small nail)

Straight pin

This will be used to inscribe onto the Cheeto (or candle or carrot).

White candle


The white candle represents elemental Fire. It should be a real candle, rather than an LED.

Small bowl of water


Elemental Water.

Small bowl of salt


Elemental Earth.



Elemental Air.

Matches or lighter

Matches or lighter

To light the candle

Dish of sand or rocks


The purpose is to prevent burning materials from getting out of control.

Black thread

Black thread

Used to bind ritual materials together.


  • Carefully inscribe "DJT" onto the Cheeto with the pin. (If instead you went with the candle or carrot, inscribe it with the target's full name.)

  • Lean the Tower card on something (the candle, perhaps), face forward, upright.

  • Arrange the other items in a pleasing circle in front of you.

  • Say a prayer of protection to your preferred spirit or deity. (Christians, as well as many magical traditions, use the 23rd Psalm.


Light the White Candle with a match or lighter.

Hear me, oh spirits
Of Water, Earth, Fire, and Air
Heavenly hosts
Demons of the infernal realms
And spirits of the ancestors
I call upon you
To bind
Donald J. Trump
That he may do no harm
To any human soul
Nor any tree
or Sea
Bind him so that he shall not break our polity
Usurp our liberty
Or fill our minds with 
	hate, confusion, fear, or despair
And bind, too,
All those who enable his wickedness
And those whose mouths speak his poisonous lies
I beseech thee, spirits, bind all of them
As with chains of iron
Bind their malicious tongues
Strike down their towers of vanity

Invert the Tower tarot card.

I beseech thee in my name,
(Say your full name),
In the name of all who walk
Crawl, swim, or fly
Of all the trees, the forests,
Streams, deserts,
Rivers and seas
In the name of Justice
And Liberty
And Love
And Equality
And Peace
Bind them in chains
Bind their tongues
Bind their works
Bind their wickedness
That they may cause no further harm 
	to themselves or others

Wrap the photo around the Cheeto and tie it there with four loops of the black thread. Hold them above the candle flame until they catch fire, then hold carefully over the dish of sand as it burns. (Let go when necessary, of course!)

Speak the following loudly and with increasing passion as the photo burns to ashes:

Let it be so!
Let it be so!
Let it be so!
Let it be so!

Visualize Trump's energy dissipating; gaze at the white candle flame for a few moments, close your eyes, and imagine a bright light emerging from the darkness and gradually being revealed as the flaming torch of the Statue of Liberty. The light from the torch then brightens intensely, expanding into infinity and burning away all darkness.

Visualize Trump awakening as a baby awakens, with smiles and joy and utterly without malice. Visualize him as surrounded by White Light, protected from his puppeteers as we are protected from him.

End the ritual by pinching or snuffing out the candle.


After the ceremony, it is essential that you ground yourself. Have a good laugh, jump up and down, have a little something to eat.

Then carefully pour the ashes (not the sand) into the toilet and flush it.
